The nights maybe drawing in but that doesn’t mean the BBQ needs to go into hibernation. Here are 4 reasons why you should get your BBQ out this winter.


Summon the fire on the spookiest night of the year with a Halloween BBQ party. Pick your favourite dishes and give them grizzly names – decorated accordingly. What about rotten ribs or chilling chilli lobster? Mwaahaha!

Recipe Idea: Try the “Apple Bobbing” Tart Tatin and Smoked Ice Cream BBQ dessert.

Fireworks Night

A BBQ is the perfect way to feed guests at your home firework display. The fire from your charcoal grill complements the smell of the bonfire. A menu on a bonfire night should have the classics; hot dogs and burgers.

Recipe Idea: grill the Ultimate Hot Dog with Crispy Shoe String Potatoes


If you’re looking for an alternative Christmas Dinner idea, try firing up the BBQ? Grill a turkey drumstick or put a chicken on the rotisserie for a different taste over the festive season. You can cook the whole meal on the 4K outdoor oven from Everdure by Heston Blumenthal.

Recipe Idea: Try the delicious roast leg of lamb.

New Year’s Eve

Bring in the new year with a big feast! Cook chicken wings, chicken kebabs or a grilled mix seafood platter for your BBQ buffet. Guests can help themselves to your delicious treats before the big countdown to midnight.

Recipe Idea: The Grilled Mix Seafood Platter is perfect buffet food for any party.
